I’m kicking of my fine art fantasy photo series, Tragic Beauty, with a self-portrait called, The Red Queen. I’ll be working on this series throughout the summer, I have some friends who have volunteered to pose as some fairytale characters for me and I’m really excited.

This class was gifted to me for my birthday and I was excited about gaining a little insight into Annie’s process. But ultimately this MasterClass feels less like a class and more like an episode of inside the actor’s studio. Her interviews are interesting and I haven’t made it through each “class” yet but so […]

When I was 15 I desperately wanted to cease my own existence, I never made an attempt on my own life, but that didn’t stop my parents from getting me placed on a 51/50 and hospitalized for a week in an adolescent psychiatric ward with a bunch of other kids who actually tried to kill themselves. While I was in there not once did someone recommend we call a hotline next time.

Funeral for my twenties

They’re fucking over. I’m a thirty-year-old woman now. Damn. I already miss being in my 20’s I gotta say, no one ever knew quite how old I was just by looking at me which was nice. Less gray hair then too. My 20’s gave me a husband and a son and fistfuls of dynamite lessons […]

community college

Community college is a level academic playing field, which makes it an important tool for adult students like myself. However, attending courses with persons a decade younger than myself can be extremely frustrating, I find myself caring more about my coursework and my grades than my peers. Which is why I created this list of things I have learned so far while attending community college as a grown ass woman.

Ace's

Full-time wife, mother, and college student here bragging about my final grades for spring 2018. All A’s except Geology which was technically an A- but whatever Geology was hard as fuck and I rocked that shit…ha! Anyway, this term was really frustrating and taxing emotionally but I like to hold myself to the same standard […]

Toy gun

No, this is not a rehashing of the gun violence term paper I wrote for school, it’s just a blog post about my four-year-old son pretending he has a gun and making gun sounds.  Totally normal right? Boys will be boys blah blah…Except I fucking hate it, and I managed up until recently to shield […]

Organic mom

What’s with you all natural moms anyway? Where do you ladies get the patience required for maintaining a holistic lifestyle? I see you ladies on Instagram, writing lists by hand and dedicating yourselves to curating some kind of magical vibe and rhythmic flow in your home with essential oils and shit.   Meanwhile, I’m marching […]

smart ass

Did anyone else have a derogatory nickname growing up?   I did. While other kids were applying for college I was getting my food handlers permit to meet a course requirement. I was on an IEP and had to attend what were basically “special education” classes because I was terrible at math. I’m still bad […]

I love it. It’s exciting. I can’t wait to have my consciousness downloaded into the cybernetic brain of an anatomically correct android. via GIPHY That being said, I have decided, and my hubby agrees that Jack should have handwriting before he has a tablet. What do you guys think? What’s the screen time policy at […]

My house has more than one. Dirty clothes: There’s the main dirty clothes hamper in the laundry area. But there’s probably a messy pile of dirty clothes on the bathroom floor as I write this. Even though I scooped them all up once already today. There’s also a dirty clothes hamper in Jacks room and his […]

mom knows jack

Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]
